Jack ("Dan") Wyke Wickham

April 30, 1928 - July 9, 2014


Dan was born to jack and Inez Wickham in Salmon Arm, April 30 1928, and passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side, July 9, 2014.

He leaves behind his loving wife of 66 years, Ida (nee Proteau), four children, Dan (Maryann), Dayle Cook (Steve), Casey (Mary-Anne), Lori Holman(Richard), eleven grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Dan had a variety of jobs in his early years, but driving logging truck was his passion.  He drove for many different owners and eventually bought his own truck in 1972 and went into business as a hauling contractor.  He had an excellent reputation and never had an accident in his long career.

He was a member of the Chemainus Rod and Gun and Mount Brenton Golf Club volunteering his time over the years.  He spent countless hours beautifying his gardens and lawns at home and at their beloved property on Thetis Island.  Sitting still was only done when the work was finished and preferably with a cold Lucky in his hand.  He was a hard working man who always helped others, had many friends and was highly respected.  He loved his family and was loved in return.

His family is grateful for the care and compassion he received from friends, Home Health Care Workers, but especially Dr. Paul Manhas, who provided extraordinary care.

A celebration of his life will be held at Mellor Hall at the Cowichan Exhibition Grounds, Saturday, August 9, 2014 from 1-4pm.
